    I might take a spin down to Bellingham to get one if it's SIM unlocked. Or Order it and send it to my US mailbox...



    Sorry to burst your bubble, but WA sales tax is 9.5% in Seattle area and it's 8.5% in Bellingham.

    Good idea....wonder why Apple's Canadian prices don't reflect our stronger dollar?

    Best Buy has announced 6 WiFi iPads per store. Only those stores with dedicated Apple Sections will have 3G Versions.

    anyone know what the difference is going to be between the 3G from Verizon vs. ATT? I can't seem to figure out if Verizon offers the "A-la-Carte" plan like ATT does???



    Although I just figured out that the ATT plan is for a month service and then re-occurring if you don't cancel within that month.



    Someone know the difference?

    Endlich, an exact time online orders start ....



    I figured Midnight PST/3 a.m. EST, but whatever.



    Me?

    White 32 GB/WiFi, thank you very much!



    And since I live in the city, why don't I just to one of the stores?

    Let us say -- I do not subscribe to the - ah .... "scene" there ....

    That should keep the lines pretty muted compared to the iPad 1 and iPhone launches.



    The majority of Apple's launch partners will be severely supply constrained and will sell out their initial allotment rather quickly. I know an ETL who works at Target and they said most stores received 5 units per SKU earlier this week and there was further information that allocation will be very limited for awhile. I've heard something similar for WalMart.

    You might want to rethink the White version. See the article by John Gruber at Daring Fireball, who said the white one was very distracting to read with. That is why TV's all have black borders, to minimize distractions. Matter of personal taste in some cases, but distractions when reading can be annoying, in spite of how good the device looks.

    Apple is going to expedite all orders. You're just wasting your money to pay for next day. IMO

    The gigantic 369 MB GarageBand for iPad is downloading this old iPad even as I post, while the new Universal iMovie is loading on my iPhone 4 but not on my iPhone 3GS.

    We don't trust your currency. And, we like making more money.

    which makes me wonder why they chose to do white this time. I could understand when the iPhone 3G & 3Gs had white options. They had the white on the back and not the bezel. The iP4 with a white bezel is going to have this same issue IMO.

    They will be playing with their Kinecs in between classes, waiting for the bus or subway, sleeping with them, bringing it to work, playing with it when bored inside the classroom, when waiting patiently in lines... What else did I miss?
